What a weekend it has been! I feel like not only was this weekend full of relaxation, I was also able to get a lot accomplished. Although I barely touched the list that I made on Friday, I realized something so much more important.
For the last few months, I would get so upset whenever I looked into a mirror. I noticed changes in my body that I haven't ever seen before. Fat going in places it's not suppose to, and staying there. I have no one to blame but myself. I began eating badly and not taking care of my body. It really shows now.
Everyone says: "But you're still skinny". Skinny is not what I'm going for; healthy is. Although looking great in a bathing suit is a MAJOR perk, feeling better and more energized is much more important. I started making changes a few weeks ago but would cheat on my diet every day. I wouldn't even call what I was doing a diet.
This time is different. Like I said before, my goal isn't to be skinny. It's to be healthy. To feed my body what it been longing for is my goal. I will admit, there is a weight goal I have set for myself but with the understanding that muscles weighs a lot more than fat, so I realistically may not make that goal.
I will set myself up for success through my meal planning, working out schedule, and with self-determination. I want to try new workouts, and try new things. I want to love running again like I used too. I know I can do it. It starts with me saying "yes" and not making excuses for myself.
Stay tuned, I will share as this journey I'm on continues!
Here's me trying a new workout: Tire flipping. (clearly the grammatical term for it).
This time will be different. I know it.
ON ANOTHER NOTE:
My weekend was amazing. My husband and I spent the afternoon working out and visiting some monuments here on the island. It helps that our gym is in walking distance of Pearl Harbor. Seriously such an amazing site to see. I snapped some photos as we walked around, and will leave them below.
It really was an amazing weekend, and one I hope will remain in my mind for a long time.
Us on our Saturday night date: Cheat meal of the week was California Pizza Kitchen ;) SO WORTH IT.
I hope you all had an amazing weekend, and met some of your goals. Here's to a good week of life changes and making our goals! (Well in Hawaii, we still have one more day off...thank God for Hawaiian holidays :) )!
Until next time,
